Will changing Prezista Dosage make my viral load rise?

Mar 16, 2013

I am currently taking Prezista 600 mg. 2x a day, Norvir 100 mg. 2x daily, Truvada once a day and Isentress 400 mg. 2x a day. Is changing Prezista to 800 mg. once a day and Norvir 100 mg. once a day, a wise thing? or will my viral load rise? My viral load has been undetected for over 5 years. and CD count is 650.

Response from Dr. Young


Darunavir (Prezista) is approved to be used with both dosing strategies you've described. The once-daily is only recommended for first-line (or people without protease drug resistance).

There's no reason to think that this should cause your viral load to rise.

Be well, BY
